I have just come up with the theory that the Irish are after single-handedly preventing, or at least delaying, a Third World War. If the Lisbon Treaty had been passed, we would have had an other arrogant superpower, i.e. Europe, and we wouldn’t have felt the need to be so diplomatic as we do as individual states.
A family member of mine got upset about not receiving a birthday card from another family member recently, and it made me think about this whole greetings thing again. My family aren’t the best at birthdays etc. etc., which often made me think about these occasions. I think in a lot of cases birthdays, Valentine´s Day, Mother´s Day, Father´s Day etc., are a good way for people to ease their guilt. I have many times in my life seen people being a disastrous husband, child or whatever and arriving with huge gifts on any occasion they get a chance. Sometimes they hardly talk to the other from one end of the year to the other, and then arrive with cards etc.
For myself, I love buying things for family and friends when I happen to see something that would really suit the person, and it doesn’t have to be Xmas or any other time of the year. We all say that every year Xmas shopping is a pain in the a*se and yet we still do it, buying sh*t that nobody wants. I gave it up years ago, with the exception of kids of course.
For the last 10 years I have bought a couple of great holidays away as presents, and it’s great when everyone gets together in February or March. The memories of these holidays are worth far more than some stupid jumper ripped off a shelf at speed on Xmas Eve. It’s all a load of b*ll*cks for the guilt ridden, of which I’m one, but can’t be hypocritical!!
All the other nations of the world should donate huge sums of money to the Irish for saving us from the Third World War so that us Irish can get back to doing what we used to do best before the feckin Celtic Tiger – which is drinking pints, talking sh*t, writing and playing music and philosophising. We should never have to work again in our lives. It won’t cost the rest of you much because we are only 4,000,000 people in the World, which is .0000000000000000000% of the population.
Fair play to all the other EU countries that poured millions into Ireland over the last 30 years – we really appreciate it, but now they want money back from us and they want us to work, they even made us work for the last ten years, and we never saw it coming because we were too busy working and buying stupid f*ckin Xmas presents for b*stards that we hate.
It’s time for the Irish to relax, take it easy, don’t let them fool us. They´re trying to keep our minds occupied with programmes like Sky News, Eastenders and Coronation Street! Wake up, wake up, they have us working instead of talking sh*t!!! Smell the heather!!! We might even have our first case of illness due to stress in Ireland if we’re not careful!
It’s as serious as the ozone layer and we have to plan for the future well being of the Irish nation before it’s too late!!
